YouTube and website traffic
YouTube can be extremely influential in driving traffic to your online content, website or blog. Website traffic is essential to make your presence felt at World Wide Web. The more the traffic at your website, the more recognition ad profit you would earn. A blog or a web page with little traffic would be thrashed by Google and your page will be no longer visible to the online users on search engines.
Steps to increase traffic to your website via YouTube
To increase the traffic towards your online web content, make sure you use YouTube video links appropriately in your content and page so that it’s more visible to the users. Website traffic can also be increased by having your website domain name attached to the video link that you might post on social media web pages.
Here are some steps that would help you to derive traffic to your website via YouTube
1. Add your domain name to the YouTube video links
When you post videos related to your content at various blogs, pages, and profiles on social websites, make sure that your website domain name is attached with the video link. You can do this by adding water marks to the video using video editing software, or you can add your website name in the start or end of the video. Users who will play the video will get to know about your website and are more likely to follow it.
2. Use CTA (call to action) overlays
These are pop up links that appear under the video that lead the viewers to another website. You can use these CTAs running with your videos that will invite the users to your concerned website.
3. Deliver your message at the end of the video
At the end of the video, add compelling offers with catchy titles so that the viewers are attracted to visit your website. In brief words state what useful the viewers will find at your website. When you upload your video on YouTube, don’t forget to add description about your website in the description box.
YouTube can turn into a tremendous traffic generator if you add your website URLs, deliver catchy messages and make use of CTAs overlays with your YouTube videos.
